(A Serendipity Novel #1)
Publication date: May 1st 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance, Suspense


Sometimes surviving doesn’t feel lucky. Especially when you’re a sole survivor…

At the age of seven, Malerie walked away from a bombing that left hundreds dead—including her mother. When a crazed gunman kills her guardian on her eighteenth birthday, Malerie suspects there may be more to her survival than luck. A mysterious code holds the key to her future, and a reluctant white knight holds the key to her heart.

A loner wearing emotional armor…

Ace is a twenty-year-old entrepreneur focusing on two things in life: financial security and a life without ties. A life that doesn’t risk losing the ones who matter. When Ace is hired to secretly act as a bodyguard for Malerie, he faces an unwanted attraction that threatens to sabotage his heart. Can Ace find the courage to love a girl with a death wish?

The Review

How much bad luck can one person have?  Or is it good luck?  That is the least of the questions to be answered in this story.

The characters were, on the whole, reasonably well developed and the frustration of the attraction between Ace and Malerie which Ace tries to muffle is nicely written.

The story moves along at a reasonable pace, though the ending felt a bit rushed, and I’m not sure that the mysterious code was ever satisfactorily explained.

Overall though, an enjoyable read and a B- from me. (4* Amazon)

She’s terribly fond of chocolate, coffee, and books that take her away from reality.  She doesn’t mind being called a geek or “crazy dog lady”. When she’s not working the day job or writing a novel, she’s guilty of surfing the internet for no good reason.
